|The Myth of Language and the Kind and Gentle Woman - Patrick Bruskiewich|
There is no greater myth that perpetuates the feminist mystique than the myth that woman are by their very nature kind, thoughtful and altruistic. In reality, they are after all human just like the men. Many feminists strive to perpetuate biased stereotypes and questionable assumptions both about what it is to be female, and about maleness, male anger and male aggression. A look at the nature of Total War and the Nuremberg Tribunal Findings, about who voted Hitler into power and why...

|Is UBC the Cambridge of the West Coast ? ... evidently not! - Patrick Bruskiewich|
A 2007 letter to the Ubyssey newspaper asking the question "Is UBC the Cambridge of the West Coast" with the answer evidently not!

|Physics Experiment 1, Longitudinal Disturbance - Patrick Bruskiewich|
There are very few introductory physics experiments that allow the study of longitudinal waves or disturbances. In this experiment the velocity of a disturbance along a row of toppling dominoes will be studied as a function of the spacing between the dominoes. The concept of scaling and characteristic curves will be used to find an expression for the velocity of a row of toppling dominoes as a function of the spacing.

|Canada, Natural Disasters and Humanitarian Relief - Patrick Bruskiewich|
There are two general categories of natural disasters, those that are gradual and foreseeable, (such as drought or famine), or those which are sudden and unforeseeable (such as an earthquake or a severe storm). Natural disasters are multifaceted in character, and require a humanitarian response that is commensurate with the nature of the disaster. The scale of the response needs to reflect the social and economic conditions of the disaster victims...

|The Bruskiewich - Volkoff - Von Neumann Algorithm: A Simulation of a Random Two or Three State System - Patrick Bruskiewich|
This manuscript was co-written in 1982 with Dr. George Volkoff but remained lost in the primary author's papers, until recently rediscovered with other manuscripts. The crux of this paper stems from discussions that the primary author had with Dr. Volkoff, and prior discussions George had with his colleagues Stanislaw Ulam and the late John von Neumann. Using the Ulam Mapping Function an algorithm is developed to produce pseudo-random two and three state selection, such as coin tosses and random...

|Uniform Wrapping Compared to the Logarithmic Spiral - Patrick Bruskiewich|
One very nice problem in calculus is determining the length of paper tightly wrapped up in a roll of paper. Such a system is known as a uniformly wrapped system. The problem is similar to that of a logarithmic spiral, but is governed by the constraint that the distance between each layer of the roll is a constant spacing c. The Logarithmic spiral has no such spacing constraint. This manuscript was written in 1984 but remained lost in the author's papers, until recently rediscovered with other ma...
